Think of the Miners
I hadn’t quite pictured just how small the hole was. Seeing each of these items listed out makes me think about what I’d need. I’d probably ask them to load up an iPod Touch with a bunch of articles in Instapaper and my Kindle account. After 2 months without anything to read, I’d be going nuts. [via Co.Design]
Graphic: How Much Do Music Artists Earn Online?
The graphic shows that artists make their money back fastest by selling self-pressed discs and slowest by streaming on Spotify (it’s a 32,000x increase). While it’s important to note how little artists make from streaming music, it doesn’t consider how much they make on merch and concert tickets as a result of the increased exposure a streaming service may provide.
It seems more and more artists consider their music loss-leaders for physical goods and experiences.
A Tax Form for the Marginally Employed
Sam Potts is a funny man. “Please do not use staples when attaching firstborn.” Duly noted.
The Panic Status Board
To keep on top of their various projects, Panic installed an LCD screen with an overview of what’s going on. I’ve wanted to do this at home for the longest time.
Our support turnaround time is faster than it’s ever been. Just the simple act of “publicizing” those numbers — not in a cruel way, but a “where are we at as a group?” way — has kept the support process on-task and, I think, made it a bit more like a video game. (It helps that when all the boxes are at “zero”, a virtual bottle of champagne appears on-screen, and a physical one is likely removed from the fridge.)

This graphic from Martha Kang McGill shows how people in 8 cities get to work. There are no major surprises (lots of driving in LA and Houston, very little in NYC, DC and SF), but it certainly looks nice. I am curious about why biking was grouped with working at home instead of walking — seems odd. I also wonder why there is relatively little carpooling in New York. If I had to guess, it’d be that people prone to carpooling just take public transport.
I also wish I could find out more about the artist, but Googling didn’t help much. I found the site via David and the via link ends here. I authorize you to Google on my behalf.
Crazy NYT Graphic of Box Office Revenue from the Last 24 Years
A lot of fun to browse, but I'd really like to zoom in to explore the less successful films [via kottke]
